If you need to report an absence or late arrival, please complete the on-line absence form linked in the header section above. As a safety measure, if your singer is not checked in at rehearsal and we have not heard they will be absent, we will call you to verify the absence. The best way to reach us during rehearsals is via the MYC cell phone: 608-770-7464.

Rehearsal Parent Opportunities this Semester
We would love your welcoming demeanor to fill our open rehearsal parent slots for this semester! Responsibilities may be shared between two or more volunteers, if desired, (taking turns every other week, for example).
  • Capriccio
  • Cantilena

Rehearsal parents arrive 10-15 minutes before rehearsal begins, take attendance and ensure we have been in contact with families of absent singers. If you are interested in volunteering for this rewarding role (you will meet a lot of singers and their parents!), please email Ian for more information. Thanks!
 
 
 
 
 
Spring Introductory Choir
For students ages 7-10, new sessions of introductory choir begin mid-February and registration is open on our website under the Join A Choir tab. Completing introductory choir is the first step toward joining a year-long choir for singers this age.
 
 
 
 
 
Coffee
February orders are due Monday, February 19. January orders will be available for pick up this weekend at rehearsals. Families receive $5/unit sold toward their fundraising contribution goal.

 
 
 
 
Madison Boychoir Festival
February 24, 2018 | West High School, Madison

Members of Purcell, Britten, Holst and Ragazzi play host to hundreds of fellow singers from all over Madison and southern Wisconsin at our 7th Annual Madison Boychoir Festival on Saturday, February 24. Please be reminded:

  • This is on your MYC calendar;
  • it's a required event (please plan ahead!);
  • we need to hear from you via the on-line absence form if you have an immovable, unavoidable conflict;
  • MYC singers DO NOT need to register; we are already planning you will be participating (see above!)
  • The FREE, public concert showcasing the festival's 400+ participants begins at 12:30pm. We are finished around 1:15pm.

This is not only an amazing day for our singers and the community; it's an amazing day filled with logistical victories made possible by our excellent volunteers--YOU! Please consider joining us!
 
 
 
 
Choir! Choir! Choir!
Parents: Choir! Choir! Choir! is coming to Madison. This community experience started in Canada as a weekly drop-in singing event and combines group building, singing, and comedy. You get a lyric sheet at the door, they teach you a vocal arrangement, and record a video of the evening! It's usually a familiar pop song (think Queen, Prince, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Talking Heads, etc.)

Saturday, February 24, 5PM, at High Noon Saloon.
